Navigator Fees

Navigator is our investment management service. Aesop will open your investment account through our account custodian and manage it for you.

Navigator investment management fees are based on the amount in a client's investment account.

Accounts under $2,000 are charged $20 per year, billed at $5 every 3 months.

Accounts with balances between $2,000 and $50,000 are charged 1.00% of the account balance, prorated and billed every 3 months.

Accounts over $50,000 are charged $500 per year, billed at $125 every 3 months.

For Navigator clients, the investment advisory fees will be deducted from the client's investment account and paid to Aesop by the account custodian. Clients are encouraged to review their account statements to confirm advisory fees are deducted accurately.

Clients may pay additional brokerage or fund fees. Aesop does not receive commission or transaction-based fees, or any portion of brokerage or fund fees.

Our Compass financial planning service is included with our Navigator service at no additional charge.

Compass Fees

Compass is our financial planning service. Aesop will provide a written plan with cash-flow, debt, saving, and investment recommendations.

Compass fees are billed annually at $145 for the first twelve months. 

After the first year, Compass is billed at $95 for each additional twelve-month period.

Compass includes:

  • Customized financial plan
  • Access to contact your advisor
  • Unlimited updates to your written financial plan
  • Aesop newsletters
  • Personalized notifications to help reach your goals

Compass clients may pay financial planning fees by ACH or credit card. Clients will enter payment information into a secure system hosted by third-party payment processor, Advice Pay. Within Advice Pay's system, you will approve charges and receive a payment confirmation after each transaction.

Clients can log into a portal hosted by Advice Pay which includes the ability to view payment history, and update credit card or bank account information. Aesop Advisor, LLC and its supervised persons will not access or use your user ID/password to the portal hosted by Advice Pay.

Compass will renew annually until cancelled by the client, or the client begins receiving investment management services through Aesop Navigator. If a Compass client becomes a Navigator client, any fees paid for the prorated remainder of their 12-month Compass service cycle will be transferred to any Navigator fees. Fees for the first year are considered earned upon delivery of the written financial plan.
